Omoide Yokocho Yakitori Lantern

Two-weekends ago I took a stroll through Omoide Yokocho (or Memory Lane) near Shinjuku Station's west exit (or Nishi-Guchi). Some may also know it as Shonben Yokocho or (Piss Alley). This narrow alley is full of small restaurants and has a unique, charming and authentic feeling. At times this crowed dirty alley makes you feel like you've left modern Shinjuku and traveled back in time. Then suddenly your snapped out of your trance by the tourists crowding out the locals in this unique time-capsule. CNN has a great post located here.
